In this challenge the rotational relationship between the Pigpen symbols are used to create a new cipher. In this part the well-known key squares are used as a warm up.

Cool code, I'm afraid what part II will be.

However, the website does not appear to be accepting any solutions, right or wrong. It just reloads and says 0 people are working on this cipher.

Hello DarkFibre,

could you try that again? I just tried to submit a solution and it seemed to work fine. Also one user already solved it. If it still doesn't work I will investigate the problem. If this is a technical issue, we will take measures so you don't have any disadvantage over it.
Just let me know if it works now.

Your MTC3 Team

Many thanks, it was just an idea I had one day so thought i'd turn it into a full blown challenge!

I enjoy working on the problems on this site so I thought i'd contribute.

Ok, I just tried with IE on PP 1 and PP 3 and neither will accept an answer from me. They just reload the page when I hit submit. PP 3 still says 0 people are working on it. Neither says if it was the right or wrong answer.

Send me your answers and at least I can check if they are right so that when the site works for you you can be sure you are right.

I got the same problem as DarkFibre.
When I insert solution and press "Submit" the page just refresh itself and I see no answer whether answer was correct or not.

There is some error on web-page for this challenge.
There is also missing part of its name:
There is only "Pigpen with a"
instead of
"Pigpen with a "twist" - Part 1"
if you compare it with part two, then there you can see its full name

maybe this causes also the problem with inserting the solution

This challenge has more twists than in its name ;-)
You have to guess how to provide a solution.
You have to switch web-page into German language and then insert the solution.
If your web-page is set to English language then no answer would be accepted.
What a discrimination :-D ;-)
